Not to denigrate your personal tastes, but I would not go near something called a pork pie cake.  Does it actually have pork in it?  Definitely something taste-specific.  A lot of people don’t eat pork.

I would be disappointed if there wasn’t an actual wedding cake, they’re so pretty.

Why not do both, if the pork pie thing is important to you?

chantelle1994 :  Pass on the pork pie. Yes to traditional wedding cake, cupcakes or cheesecake, mini pies, desserts in jars,  whatever sweet treat you like…just no pork pie.

Full disclosure. I don’t actually know what pork pie is but it doesn’t sound appetizing.

If you like pork pie, get one to cut, and maybe another one or two if guests want to try it. 

Serve cupcakes or cake for the other guests.

Although it’s your wedding, your reception is also for the guests. Keep that in mind. I don’t know of anyone other than you who would choose pork pie (wtf is that?) over a cake or cupcake/dessert of some sort.

I looked it up.  It’s a traditional British cold meat pie.

You might want to do a poll for this.

chantelle1994 :  go with cupcakes or cookies if you don’t like cake. Pork pie sounds pretty bad. And a lot of people don’t eat pork. Much less meat pies.

Pork pies are good but go with tradition and even get a small cake.

I’m going to say as you’re doing the cupcake stand, do the pork pie cake. You can still do a cake cutting with it. I wouldn’t make it massive though; I for one don’t eat pork pies.

I would still do a traditional wedding cake for your guests. Perhaps if you like pork pie, you could do that instead of a groom’s cake for you and your hubby. You could even do cupcakes if that would be more cost efficient. But… this is coming from a girl who loves her cake lol. I’m not big on ice cream or some other sweets, but I love cake.

chantelle1994 :  Is it literally a pie made of/with pork? So, a savory meat pie? In place of wedding cake? I don’t think that’s a fair substitution. Cupcakes, regular pie, donuts… ok whatever. But meat pie for dessert? No thank you.

chantelle1994 :  To be honest, I would be disappointed as a guest if there wasn’t some type of cake. Of course I would not say that out loud. Perhaps just get a small cutting cake then some cupcakes to your guest.  Having a meat-based pie does not sound appetizing for a dessert and you are running the risk of spending money on something many of the guests will not eat.
